her mainstream retro-rock flavored follow-up Lifescrapes, she returned in 2008
with Barefoot, which had a darker and heavier rock flavor to it. Spriggs was going
through a number of personal issues at the time and the music was a reflection
of that process.
she managd to work through her dark emotional issues and has emerged emotionally
and spiritually a better person with a lot to offer as evident but her most recent
genre has changed somewhat since I started recording and performing. My early
stuff was earthy and edgy, but now Im writing more contemporary and lighter
songs and having way more fun," says Spriggs.
focus on adult contemporary pop came from being in a comfortable place with myself
and the world around me. Its a happy ending to a long and sometimes very
challenging story, but what matters is that Im here to sing and tell the
single mother's new outlook on life is reflected in the catchy dance tune "Lola
La Lo" which she co-wrote with collaborator Marcus Kane..
always wanted to do a dance song, and the story Marcus and I tell in the lyrics
captures this change of heart. When the song starts, everythings gone wrong,
shes lost her job and run out of gas, then she sees a cute boy in a Corvette,
he winks at her, theres an instant chemistry, and she gets in the car and
drives off with her dream guy. Its the perfect fairy tale.
her latest release, Spriggs is hoping her fairy tale career will continue as her
audience continues to expand.
